Businessman Gautam Adani-led Adani Group suffered a major setback from market regulator SEBI. SEBI has banned the IPO of Adani Wilmar's Adani Group company. The reason for the moratorium is the Foreign Portfolio Investment (FPI) probe against Adani Enterprises. The company was preparing to raise Rs 4,500 crore through IPO.

SEBI has already banned IPO

According to SEBI rules, if the company applying for IPO is under investigation in any department, then its IPO cannot be approved for 90 days. Even after this, the IPO can be postponed for 45 days. In June 2021, SEBI also banned the IPO of low-cost airline GoFirst as the probe against its promoter was going on.
